Still working on that hot first release.



The Gaslight Tinkers were born when Garrett Sawyer (electric bass guitar) and Peter Siegel (mandolin, guitar, banjo picker and songwriter) met over coffee to craft a new sound.  Peter, having played in the folk scene for decades with the likes of Pete Seeger and Judy Collins, brought a deep knowledge of traditional folk music. Garrett, with his broad experience in world music (having toured in the US with Senegalese hip-hop band Gokh-Bi System and the Caribbean with Trinidadian soca star Kurt Allen) brought an intuitive concept of danceable global grooves to the table.  The two knew they needed a fiddler to realize their vision and happened upon Zoë Darrow.  Zoë, a western Massachusetts favorite and an award winning fiddler and clogger, from the age of  four has lead her own trio, “Zoë Darrow and the Fiddleheads,” performing Scottish, Irish, and Cape Breton fiddle tunes. Drums were needed, and soon they knew who they wanted: ethnomusicologist and world beat drummer Dave Noonan, who brings his experience of performing with numerous reggae/world/dance bands including The Equalites, Ed Mann’s Dub Jazz Unit, Fenibo, and Little Shop of Horas to the table.

Over the last two years, the band has been showing their faces up and down the east coast from Asheville, NC to Boston, MA..  The the release of their first recording in 2014, the band is poised to jam anywhere and everywhere.
